Career Considerations

The Associate of Science degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Southern Oregon University (SOU). The SOU departments of psychology and sociology/anthropology offer an interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree program focusing on the needs of human service professionals, a Bachelor of Arts or Science in Social Science. The UCC Associate of Science (AS) degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Human Service program and allows students to transfer directly as juniors into the program at SOU with no loss of credits to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Students should contact the SOU Human Services program early in the first year of the AS program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program. Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, their courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.
